Polished Performances

Polished Performances is feature whereby I highlight an actor in a particular role that has struck a chord with me. There will be award winners, award losers, cameos, bit-parts and, generally, those that have gained little to no recognition whatsoever. This is a collection of performances that are worth savouring – regardless of their recognition or screen time. (Click on the actor’s name for more detail)…
